One of DH's friends on Facebook needed a baking idea, I made this last summer for some friends that came over for supper, they wanted dinner after, and I had some blueberries and a few plums in the fridge, and tossed this together. Turned out well.
1/2 pint blue berries
4-5 small plums (diced)
3/4 cup sugar
1/4-1/2 cup water
simmer till berries are burst and liquid is syrupy, then pour into pie pan or other dish that is lined with dough. See below for dough recipe.
1 1/2c flour
2 teaspoon baking powder
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/3 c butter
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 cup cream
combine flour, salt, sugar, baking powder, cornstarch. pinch in butter till crumbly. combine egg, cream, vanilla, then add to flour, butter mixture to form dough.
divide into thirds, line the bottom of a dish with 1/3 dough. press pinches of the remaining 2/3 of the dough into sugar then lay (sugar side up) atop the fruit mix till covered.
Bake 350 for 30 min. Enjoy mmmmmm
